Add "id_" after the timestamp in a url. For example:

http://web.archive.org/web/20150901185758id_/http://www.example.com

Hope this helps. :)

Thanks, that seems to work. (Sure would be nice if it were *documented* anywhere :-P)

does *NOT* work.

Example:
Looking for original of my old ISP, mindpsring.com
trying

http://web.archive.org/web/19961219135430id_/http://www.mindspring.com/

or

http://web.archive.org/web/19961219135430/http://www.mindspring.com/

NOTHING, dumps you to mindspring and a redirect to earthlink.

BROKEN!

Happily, these seem to work fine now.
